So sorry to hear of John's passing. Even though we only saw each other a couple times a week at Fitness, I considered him a friend. He always had a smile and a great laugh. He was a great woodcarver and would light up when he shared his stories. Rest in peace Dear Friend

My sympathies to his family and close friends. I was a fellow woodcarver with John for over 10 years. I enjoyed his companionship, his friendliness, his technical knowledge and his concern for others. I will miss his smiling face and jest for life. My thoughts and prayers are for the family.

Got to know and cherish John's friendship from the days of his marriage to cousin Rose, especially close to my parents. I share the grief of the Daniel family as well as the extended Beyke family, who became like family from my time at St. Henry and St Bernard's parishes.
May John rest in God's peace. All are in my prayer, especially at Mass.

John was such a kind and gentle soul. He was a great brother and brother-in-law, woodworker, pilot and friend. If you asked John for help he was their. We will miss him. What helps is knowing that he is back together with Rose, the love of his life.

We spoke with John on the 19th of May and enjoyed the phone visit with him. John was a generous, happy person and a good woodworker. He shared his talents with many people. He will certainly be missed but we know he is in a better place -- in heaven with God and his wife, Rosie.
